Menu Plan Monday

This was a great week for our meal planning. Because I knew exactly what I was doing for dinner each night, I was able to have everything ready in advance and quickly pull it together when everyone was hungry. I was so excited to have the extra time with the kids outside. Planning ahead can be so wonderful.

For the kids, we did pretty well adding raw veggies to our meals. I want to keep working it this week. Maybe some fun 'dips' will help - hummus, catchup, ranch, etc.

New "kid" foods:
  • raw veggies - broccoli, carrots, etc.

Menu for this week:
  • Tuesday -- Grilled Brats, Pasta Salad
  • Wednesday -- Salmon Caesar Salad
  • Thursday -- Grilled Veggies and Sausage

Check out more menu plan's at Organizing Junkie.

Happy Monday!

It is a good week for grilling.

I don't have a recipe for the Salmon Caesar Salad. I normally just through something together. Sometimes I make my own dressing, but this week we are just using Newman's Own Caesar dressing. I have some salmon fillets that will be pan-seared. Maybe throw in some boiled eggs and artichokes.

Thanks for stopping by!

We used to make homemade pizza all the time when I was a kid - it was delicious! And the recipe for Chinese Chicken and Cabbage sounds great - I'll definitely have to try it out soon. You should check out springpad's
weekly meal planner - it's a great way to organize all of your menus and recipes, I think you'd really like it!
